I’ve always admired these two home located in Central Seattle on Yesler. They are both set back from the street and look like some new -age compound or ’70’s artist retreat. They are both rented out and the current tenant in the back building was kind enough to let me take a look around and shoot a few photos. If you know anything about these homes / studios or who the architect is, please let me know.


 This is another great house in the Central District that I’ve always admired. I’m pretty sure it started out as just a classic WWII bungalow, but what it has ended up being is a handyman’s masterpiece, grandpa’s weekend project or both. Where on earth did he get all that rock?


Meet Lula Sarah Poulock

 Paper flowers, feathers, colorful pictures cut from magazine, ticket stubs, holiday decorations, Hawaiin leis, souvenier pillows, these are just some of the fanciful items decorating the walls floor and ceiling of Lula’s Seattle home. Lula is a folk artist and her home is her studio and canvas.




I met Lula when I was touring her home with a client. The duplex she has lived in for the last 20 years is on the market and for sale. I’m not saying where it is, as I think it would be a shame to make this wonderful woman move out of her home. I was awe-struck and amazed and when I explained that I collected photos of unusual and beautiful homes, she graciously invited me in to photograph hers.

Thank you, Lula!
